What is Hyperbolic Geometry? - School of Mathematics, TIFR

... Gauss started thinking of parallels about 1792. In an 18th November, 1824 letter to F. A. Taurinus, he wrote: ‘The assumption that the sum of the three angles (of a triangle) is smaller than two right angles leads to a geometry which is quite different from our (Euclidean) geometry, but which is in ...

isosceles trapezoid

... An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid whose legs are congruent and that has two congruent angles such that their common side is a base of the trapezoid. Thus, in an isosceles trapezoid, any two angles whose common side is a base of the trapezoid are congruent. In Euclidean geometry, the convention i ...

# Four-dimensional space

In mathematics, four-dimensional space (""4D"") is a geometric space with four dimensions. It typically is more specifically four-dimensional Euclidean space, generalizing the rules of three-dimensional Euclidean space. It has been studied by mathematicians and philosophers for over two centuries, both for its own interest and for the insights it offered into mathematics and related fields.Algebraically, it is generated by applying the rules of vectors and coordinate geometry to a space with four dimensions. In particular a vector with four elements (a 4-tuple) can be used to represent a position in four-dimensional space. The space is a Euclidean space, so has a metric and norm, and so all directions are treated as the same: the additional dimension is indistinguishable from the other three.In modern physics, space and time are unified in a four-dimensional Minkowski continuum called spacetime, whose metric treats the time dimension differently from the three spatial dimensions (see below for the definition of the Minkowski metric/pairing). Spacetime is not a Euclidean space.
